Mariakis Survives

[user163836]
Michael Mariakis

Wai Kin Wong jump-started the action when he bet a healthy 30,000 into the pot pre-flop. Makoto Yoshimichi then made a two-bet of his own as action went to Michael, who was covered by both players and decided to go all-in with his last 59,000. Action went back to Wong, who added another 30,000 to make the call.

Flop:{3-Diamonds}{5-Spades}{k-Clubs}

Wong checked while Makoto shoved all in. Wong folded and we ended up with a Yosimichi vs. Mariakis showdown.

Mariakis: {A-Hearts}{K-Hearts}
Yosimichi: {8-Hearts}{8-Clubs}

The turn {7-Spades} and river {6-Diamonds} was of no use to Yoshimichi's lower pair as Mariakis survived with his pair of kings and added some 100,000 chips to his stack.
